Me either, it's only people living in effected areas, which was never the US as we didn't even have the game out when it happened.

As for boycotting the DRM for Ubi titles, I can't do that. Functionally I don't have a problem with it, it works well and I have never not been able to play AC2 over 15+ hours. I think it is actually easier and more bug-free than Steam. So the only reason to boycott is the principle of the thing, and if I boycotted on the principle of disliking account-based ownership systems I would have to boycott Steam as well, which means missing out on a lot of games. My main thing is that to worry about playing a PC game, the open platform, in 20 years is a bit silly. There will be away, there will always be a way on PC, unless the government completely takes over the internet.
I gots one of them high powered gaming computers with an EVGA GTX 480 video thingy and a Q9550 processing device and also one of them Windows 7 64 operating programs with 4GB of some Corsair 1033 DDR2 ram.
